9:30am
the economy does need help from ben, right? >> i think it does, we got ahead of ourselves and our imaginations were our own worst enemies, if you think of what he said, data dependent the data is not there to do what the traders thought they were going to do. they can't raise interest rates, up, up and away. >> thanks, scott. we'll keep threw and bring you back in a second and i see they're cheering in the background and the market is off and running and i expect to see a lot of green arrows today. we're expecting a gain of well over 100 points when we get the ball rolling on this thursday morning rally. look at the market right now. we're up 67 points, please take a look at what we call a market scan. that's a scan of all the 30 stocks that make up the dow industrials, and every single one in the green and they're all up today. led by caterpillar by a very big gain there, all dow 30 stocks are up. some individual companies, i'm going to start with microsoft, it's a dow stock and the company announced a big shake-up.
9:31am
it's going to focus on devices and services rather than pc's and bring it altogether in four engineering units. so, nicole, where is the stock? >> right, so the stock is looking good here, up nearly 1%. they're doing restructuring which is categorized as dramatic. in apps, cloud and devices and devices include just about everything from pc's to tablets to television attachments and the like and they're going to be rechanging the management structure in a big way and it seems dramatic. a look at the big board for a second. and we just passed the old closing high. you're into record territory right now. 15,414 is where we are. a gain of 123 points as predicted. still there, nicole, it will he me about yum! brands. i understand that its sales have been hit by, what is it, bird flu in china? tell me. nicole: that's, that's the
9:32am
problem. i think they saw a 20% drop because of bird flu and the media that went with it. and nobody was going to kentucky fried chicken there. and they saw sales improving, that's good news for them and the media coverage of what happened had also died down a bit and that's good for them as well. stuart: the overall markets straight up and yum! brands is not. we're up 134 now for the dow industrials, 15,424. and another big name we're following the story closely. wal-mart, d.c. lawmakers called wal-mart's bluff and passed the living wage requiring retailers to pay 12.60 an hour. wal-mart says it will not therefore build the three stores in d.c., goodbye to the jobs. one of the d.c. council members who led the charge for the living wage will join us in the next hour. by the way, colin quinn is here, look, i'm mad about this. the idea that you should walk away from d.c.'s jobs in a poverty stricken neighborhood.
9:33am
i don't think there's anything to smile about. can you make me smile on this one. >> wait a minute, wait a minute, so, wait a minute are we mad at lawmakers or wal-mart? >> the lawmakers. they're turning down jobs for impoverished people saying no, no, unless you pay $12 an hour we're not going to have you in our town. ridiculous. >> in d.c., which has a brutal poverty rate. stuart: nothing to smile about on this one? >> no, well, you know, smiling at the abject poverty of the people of northeast d.c. start off. stuart: you've got to crack a smile the dow is up 150 points. >> i would crack a smile if i understood the dow. the reason i'm on this show i want you to tell me how to get rich. i've been in this business a thousand years and i'm not rich. stuart: who manages your money. >> i have a good business manager, but afraid to deal with stocks, and noi what goes on with whole thing, i don't trust it and plus it's up so high, sbt
9:34am
that what people say before the fall? >> you need to tune in at the 10:00 hour, and charles payne will be here and makes all kind of money for people. >> be a part of the crew. stuart: sit there for a half hour and learn something. and the rally is up 162 now. because the fed says we're going print more, and listen to me, but they're going to keep on printing money. dow up 160. look at the price of oil, down a buck now, going the opposite way for most of the other markets. it was 107 at one point earlier this morning. please, everybody, go out there and fill up your gas tank now, because gas prices are rising 3.51 is the national average for regular now. and all kinds of predictions we're going up another 10, 20 cents a gallon within the next few days. scott shellady is still with us from chicago. all on track for a really big gain for gold and stocks. nothing's going to get in the
9:35am
way today? >> i don't think stocks will-- nothing will get in the way of stocks. i've got to tell you, i don't think that's a big shine on gold. i think the reason we're still pumping is the reason why it's higher, but we're in a deflationary cycle here, and gold is a sign of inflation, i don't think we're going to get it and that's why i think this'll keep pumping. so be careful getting too long on gold. no economy can handle high oil prices right now, i think there's he a cap coming soon. stuart: all right we've got it, scott shellady, back to business and making money. i've got a couple of stories of outrage the newest, the federal government does not have a running list of all of its programs, which is probably why the government accounting office, they are the bean counters, they say the federal government wasted 107 billion in 2012, and they are still counting. that number will go up. and there's 107 billion in bogus and excessive payments. surely you can find something. can you make me smile about
9:36am
that. >> first of all, why is scott-- scott's jacket? what is the purpose of that? >> he trades cattle, he trades cattle. >> oh. stuart: he's a cow futures guy so he wears a cow jacket, okay? >> very good. that's even more horrible than i thought. stuart: you should trust him, he makes real money. >> okay. stuart: 7 billion, you can't make me laugh about that? you're laughing. what about, back to shrimp on a treadmill. >> it's unbelievable, 107 billion dollars missing right now? >> yes. >> in washington d.c.? >> overpayments. >> they could probably pay for the extra wal-mart employees with that money. stuart: yes, they could indeed. that's probably where the money is figuring out the research-- the fact finding committee that decided wal-mart wasn't paying enough was used 107 billion. stuart: air off to a good start. a mile on my face. if the dow is up 150 points. >> don't trust that dow, i'm trying to warn, but that.%
9:37am
stuart: don't trust that dow? >> i still don't understand, how can one rumor affect the entire tangible economy. >> language, rumor. stuart: you keep your money under your mattress. >> yeah, with a baseball bat next to my bed. stuart: nicole, come in, the dow, winners on the dow, please, the big ones. nicole: for those who care about the dow, let's take a look, lots of winners to speak of. caterpillar, walt disney, j.p. morgan gaining 1%. the 100 points away from the all time intraday high. and hewlett-packard easily the number one performer up over 80% and boeing comes in second place up over 40% this year. stuart: as we speak, the dow is up 150 points. let's get back to the news of the day, eliot spitzer. we brought you that news earlier. he's running for comptroller.
9:38am
and he's running. in the first poll, he leads. eliot spitzer leads by nine points. joining the company is lee marchingoff, he conducted that poll. lee, always a pleasure to have you with us. can you explain that one for us, please? >> well, i think we're seeing an interest in voters granting eliot spitzer a second chance and they think he would make had a good comptroller. and he's got high favorables and high negatives. he's a polarizing figure on the new york scene and right now running against the borough president that's not that well-known. and right now, voters are saying, look, this is the kind of stuff politicians, they're all doing one thing or another and have skeletons in their closet. five years ago, let it slide. stuart: if he were a republican, do you think there would be the
9:39am
same reaction? >> who knows? new york city politics is an unusual place and obviously there are many more democrats than republicans in new york, you know, and anthony weiner has already, you know, in a sense broken the waters for him and now we go on to spitzer and voters don't seem to be experiencing any kind of redemption overload. people ask for forgiveness and new yorkers say, forget about it. what can i tell you? >> 9 points, just got up in the race. lee, thank you very much indeed. interesting poll indeed. thank you, sir. colin quinn, surely you've got something funny to say about eliot spitzer. >> and they're photoing for anybody who has a name. second of all, let's face it, were we outraged even when it happened? i wasn't. stuart: you were not? >> no. stuart: the governor of new york con sorts were prostitutes and walks away from the governorship. >> well, i don't think he walked away, didn't he have to leave because of that?
9:40am
i think the worst part was i think the prostitute was new jersey, i think that's really the issue. nobody wants to talk about it. stuart: i live in new jersey. >> no, i'm saying disloyal, he should do business in new york. stuart: do you think he'd go down in the polls as soon as they found out the prostitute was from new jersey. >> should be from here. stuart: very good, stay here please. check the big boards, still a nice rally, up 147 points as we speak. and the dow is now at 15,440. got a headline for you, the media stole the election in favor of president obama. up next, our guest, he says he has proof of this and colin quinn is still here. stay right there, everybody.

9:46am
i'm saying it's unravelling, is the media saying the same thing. >> it's falling apart and everyone knows it's going to continue to fall apart. the employer mandate postponed for a year, that tells you the thing is in shambles, it's worse than that. where is the individual mandate postponed? how can do you the employer and not the individual? that's one big question. another big question, is that constituti constitutionalists asking, what gave barack obama the ability to do that. the president doesn't have the authority, ability to do that that's a huge issue coming up above congress where senators like mike lee are going to ask that question. so there's huge calamities going on, not to mention the cost. it was projected to be under a trillion now it's over 3 trillion. not to mention the fact they don't know how to implement. it's a disaster. is it being reported?
9:47am
absolutely not. stuart: i knew you were going to say that. >> what you get, stuart sa blip here, a blip there, a little story here, a little story there. nobody, and i mean nobody -- how is this for a number that i just learned this morning from my staff? 61 seconds devoted to how obamacare is going to hurt small business. stuart: that's it? >> 61 seconds, stuart, in the entirety of 2012. stuart: you're getting me? >> that's this morning. >> you know, you've covered this consistently because it's a huge story affecting business. 61 seconds in all of 2012. >> now, that's incredible, incredible. brent, i've got to go. a you're right, it's unofficial back door censorship. i've he got to rush, but i want to tell everybody you've got a book out, the title "collusion
9:48am
how the media stole the election in 2012 and how to stop them doing it in 2016" i've got to run, but come back and tell us about that book because we're interested. >> thank you. stuart: colin quinn is here. >> yes. stuart: do you find anything funny about obamacare? >> i felt the problem in our country is not full medical, it's full dental, i've traveled many times. stuart: you're telling that to an englishman. >> i realize you're well-known for your lack of dental care. stuart: you're trying to be funny about dtdz. >> this show is called "varney & company," you're killing me. [laughter] you have any jokes about obamacare, your material, do you use it? >> not about obamacare 'cause you know talking about policy in particular can be boring and obama-- my whole show is about the constitution, so, it's the show i'm doing called
9:49am
"unconstitutional" so it has a lot of stuff about, more about political correctness and stuff, more about media perception than specific things like an actual policy. 'cause-- >> and do you take an ideological position, your current show is about the constitution. >> right. stuart: do you take a position? i mean, do you say, look what that guy is doing to the constitution? >> ideological in it-- it's hard to call it -- it's hard to call what i do ideological. stand-up comedy, in my opinion stand-up comedy if you don't hit everything and think, look at it all like with a cynical eye, then you can't really -- anybody that's extreme left or extreme right. it's hard for them to be really funny in my opinion even he though a lot of people are very extreme left, but i mean, it just comes off preachy in my opinion. stuart: you're right. >> so i like it to be more like everybody's complicit in whatever it is, but not to let anybody, you know, yeah there's a lot of slanted comedy.
9:50am
stuart: and you don't do that. >> no. stuart: just make me laugh. about the british teeth, that was funny, a funny story. [laughter] and you've got great teeth. and thank you for being with us, lightning up a day when the dow is going straight up. >> i am irish, it's a jinx, and you keep saying how great it's going. stuart: no works he don't jinx it. 107 billion in bogus spending in 2012. taxpayer dollars wasted. i'm going to say -- well, i've got my take all about that in a moment. ♪
9:51am

9:53am
9:54am

companies, number one apollo group and a thumbs up on accreditation and bridgepoint. here is one way to stop the keystone pipeline, build a wind farm in its path. one group is pushing that to literally block the pipeline. meet a young entrepreneur who dropped out of school in the 8th grade, joined the military and now runs a multi-billion dollar business with employees. he's 29-- no, 27 years old. he's here in our next hour. the government's own bean counters have found $107 billion worth of bogus and excessive payments for 2012 and they're still counting. more waste still to be reported. that is taxpayer money wasted by the president's ever expanding government bureaucracy. here is my take. neither you, nor i, should be surprised. for years, we've been bombarded with news of government waste,
9:56am
fraud, gross inefficiency. who could forget the shrimp on a treadmill. surprised? no, outraged, as this president expand government so does the opportunity for waste and fraud and this president will never abandon the government as the agent of change. mr. obama doesn't care 700 million in waste so long as they level it out with taxes and regulations. he conveniently ignores how government really works. the general accounting office came up with that 107 billion dollar number this week and told there was no single list of government programs. some departments don't have an accurate staffing list, they don't know who is in, who is out. and who should and should not get paid. does government ever change? tell me which programs have been cut apart from white house tours? of the 15 separate food programs, which has been eliminated? nothing ever changes, really,
9:57am
does it? we bring you this not to get you all riled up. we're not trying to score political points, just a couple of questions. have you had enough yet? do you think maybe it's time for a change after eight years of all government all the time?
